Who gives a flying fuck in a rolling doughnut about judge-its? Honestly? I find them to be quite funny as they're applied not by what one posts but by who posts it. So no real thought goes into 'em so why should any come out of 'em?Sure, hit me with the Judgits, while I post about something that really matters. I can hear the gays right now: " Oh hell no, things were going so well, I refuse to believe that", and "Oh boy, they are giving us what we want, who wants to hear this, NOW?", and "I'll bury my head in the sand and love the 'here-and-now' ". The government gives us yum-yums to distract us, while the real crimes occur. Legalizing pot, to keep more of us medicated and unable to think clearly. Legalized SSM, to keep the gays happy. Operation Amnesty, to keep the illegals happy to be here...The list of yum-yums goes on. Trinkets and tokens, to keep us complacent, while we become owned.
I do have to call you out on a bit of the above commentary...
Specifically regarding the legalisation of pot. Do you really think legalisation will increase usage? If so, you really ought to take a long hard look at prohibition and what it did, or rather didn't do, for alcohol consumption. Oh, you can look at what it did for organised crime if you want, as that was a magnificant failure for progress.
All criminalisation has done for us is fill jails and give people who could otherwise function in society a criminal record. Substance abuse is a mental health issue, not a criminal justice one. Now if you want to debate some of the criminal activity that goes on in the presence of substance abuse I'm all for it.
